Wrestlemania Backlash Results: Rhea Ripley defeated Asuka and Charlotte Flair to retain the Raw Women’s Championship.

The night kicked off with a massive RAW Women’s Championship match that saw a quintessential battle between the three of the best in Raw Women’s division. The three put on a confined show, but the things unfolded only after a slip up from Queen Charlotte, who took out Asuka with a big boot to the face, and Rhea Ripley was quick to score a pinfall on the Empress of Tomorrow Asuka.

With Flair not involved in the pinfall is a sign of an upcoming one-on-one feud between Charlotte and Ripley in the upcoming weeks of Raw.

Wrestlemania Backlash Results: Damian Priest beat The Miz in a lumberjack match

Wrestlemania Backlash

 

Time and time again, WWE has made some horrendous matches, and the lumberjack match between The Miz and Damian Priest was one of those. It wasn’t a technically praising bout as both Miz and Priest were seen spending more time fighting the Zombies lumberjacks. It was a visual treat for the audience with Zombies surrounding the ring and willing to get into the action, but there wasn’t anything promising throughout the bout. Finally, the match was done and dusted with Priest hitting ‘Hit The Lights’ to The Miz.

Wrestlemania Backlash Results: Bianca Belair defeated Bayley to retain her Smackdown Women’s Championship title

Wrestlemania Backlash

Belair’s first title defense after a historic victory over Sasha Banks at Wrestlemania 37 turned out to be a bluff. The match was expected to go down to the wire, but the end wasn’t as convincing as it should have been. Belair went for the roll-up pin, and the referee counted three even with Bayley’s shoulders were off the mat. A controversial end to the match means the rift between Bianca and Bayley is nowhere near to an abrupt end.

The ‘Head of the Table’ Roman Reigns was able to close off a spirited performance from Cesaro by making him submit to a guillotine after using the submission move twice. Irrespective of the result, Cesaro did not harm his reputation as a big-match player and took Reigns to his limits. The biggest highlight of this match was that there were no signs of the ‘Right Hand Man’ (Jey Uso) as Roman, for the first time in a while did his work by himself.

However, once the match was over, Jey and Roman viciously attacked Cesaro and were later joined by Seth Rollins, who isn’t done with Cesaro. Rollins, after ambushing Cesaro mercilessly, trapped his arms in a chair and slammed into the ring post. He concluded his attack by stomping Cesaro’s head on the floor.

As expected, the triple-threat WWE championship match was a powerhouse blockbuster. Lashley, Strowman, and McIntyre give their all in a grueling bout, but it was the All-Mighty WWE Champion who retained his title at the end of the night. The match saw temporary teams emerging at a point in time.

First, it was McIntyre and Strowman teaming up to brush aside Lashley, and then we saw McIntyre and Lashley teaming up to get the better of the ‘Monster among Men’ Braun Strowman. The ending moments saw McIntyre hitting a Claymore to Strowman, but Lashley shoved off McIntyre to hit a Spear of his own to the big man to retain his title and continue his ‘All-Mighty’ reign.
